Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson Resigns From Police Department

The White police officer who shot and killed an unarmed Black teenager has resigned from the Ferguson Police Department. Darren Wilson submitted a resignation letter and turned in his badge five days after a grand jury did not indict him for the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Wilson, who had worked at the department for six years, said that he had decided to resign after he was told that the police department had received threats of violence if he stayed in the force.
